Russian Language: Facts and Voice-Over samples in Russian

Russian is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. It is spoken by over 150 million native speakers worldwide, making it one of the most widely spoken languages globally.

Although it is the eighth most spoken language by number of speakers, its importance is significant due to the size and geopolitical influence of the countries where it is an official language.

Russian has  a unique script called Cyrillic, which consists of 33 characters. It is used not only for Russian but also for several other Slavic languages.

Russian is the official language in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan. Additionally, it is recognized as a regional language in Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. It has influenced the linguistic landscape of these regions.

In terms of grammar, Russian nouns have genders (masculine, feminine, and neuter), and this gender distinction affects various aspects of the language, including the forms of adjectives and verbs. Russian surnames can also vary by gender.

It is true that Russian plays a significant role in space exploration. Astronauts who visit the International Space Station (ISS) undergo training in the Russian language because the Soyuz spacecraft, which is used for transportation to and from the ISS, is operated using Russian systems. Russian is used in communications between astronauts and mission control, as well as in various technical manuals and documentation.
